AN URBAN MAMA'S TAKE ON NURTURING HER FAMILY

Friday, February 13

birthdayness



I baked myself a vanilla cake, and the kids helped make the icing; decoration was FULLY their domain. It was a large cake, so village son frosted and decorated my cake, village daughter frosted and decorated their abuela's cake (see above picture from this morning's fiesta).


39.
It was a fantastic day.
Think what you want,
but me, I think 39 is sexy.
Being in a state of birthdayness is awesome. Helps to be surrounded by an awesome family (super sexy husband included!) and phenomenal friends, especially ones who drop off beautifully handcrafted cards and a succulent looking box of chocolate, that I am yet to open, because you know what happens when most women open a box of chocolates (Mama M, you really need a blog so I can leave lots of comment love there too); and ones who drop off peanut butter & Hershey's kisses cookies. Plus, this morning I read so many sweet wishes on my wall, from so many darling people some new in my life, some whom I've known almost 30 years. Enough about moi.


The winner is: Mama J. Congratulations! Everyone please email me your snail mail, everyone gets a prize, because in my world everyone is a winner. Happy Weekend!xoxo

Hay Birthday. I just turned 37 and love it. I am happier and, I think, look better than I was at any other age. How lucky are we?

Happy Birthday (belated.)
I gotta make a list of blogs to check apart from the ones that appear on Google Reader... I am missing some favorite bloggers' posts, because they do not show up.
I am sorry I have not been around.
